For those who got the h1n1 shot, how are your babies?

I got the h1n1 shot around 18/19 weeks. I am just wondering , for those who got the shot has there been any problems with your baby after birth? I am 32 weeks and 4 days and all is fine with my pregnancy. I am just wondering....

  • My son is 8 months old. He got the shot a few weeks ago...just got the booster like last week. He's fine. Haven't had any problems yet. My niece got hers a few months ago, when she was about 6 months old...and she is perfectly fine.

  • I wasn't pregnant when I got the shot, not what you're asking I know, but I did get my baby vaccinated and she is just fine.

  • I can't verify or back this up, but I've heard that there were quite a number of moms who miscarried after getting the H1N1 vax while pregnant. I know someone who lost their son at 20 weeks, and had gotten the H1N1, but I can't say whether or not it was BECAUSE of the shot. I'd probably stay away from vaxes while pregnant, as long as I wasn't at a great risk of getting some disease. I also know someone who got the H1N1 shot and her baby was born perfectly fine. I personally think it's somewhat of a guessing game.
